The most popular question is how to compose the ad in the paper for 2 consecutive Sundays. Here’s How.
The Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration is acting under the Code of Federal Regulations, e.g. CFR Part 656.17 which is the primary reference, it states:
(B) Advertisements in – or professional journals. ( 1 ) Placing an advertisement on two different Sundays in the newspaper of general circulation in the area of intended employment most appropriate to the occupation and the workers likely to apply for the job opportunity and most likely to bring responses from able, willing, qualified, and available U.S. workers.
( 2 ) If the job opportunity is located in a rural area of intended employment that does not have a newspaper with a Sunday edition, the employer may use the edition with the widest circulation in the area of intended employment.
( 3 ) The advertisements must satisfy the requirements of paragraph (f) of this section. Documentation of this step can be satisfied by furnishing copies of the newspaper pages in which the advertisements appeared or proof of publication furnished by the newspaper.
If this ad were in Los Angeles county, that means you could choose between the Los Angeles Daily News, or The Los Angeles Times.
Both have different rates for consecutive Sundays.
For this sample PERM advertisement, if this ad were in Orange County, you could choose either The Orange County Register, or Los Angeles Times Orange County Edition.
Our experience has been that ads in Orange County are cheaper when run in the LA Times Orange County Edition.
The Sample PERM Advertisement looks like this:
The first thing you should notice in this sample PERM advertisement is that there’s one short line for each component of what CFR Part 656 specified when it referred you to the below paragraphs:
(f) Advertising requirements. Advertisements placed in paper of general circulation or in professional journals before filing the Application for Permanent Employment Certification must:
(1) Name the employer;
(2) Direct applicants to report or send resumes, as appropriate for the occupation, to the employer;
(3) Provide a description of the vacancy specific enough to apprise the U.S. workers of the job opportunity for which certification is sought;
(4) Indicate the geographic area of employment with enough specificity to apprise applicants of any travel requirements and where applicants will likely have to reside to perform the job opportunity;
(5) Not contain a wage rate lower than the prevailing wage rate;
(6) Not contain any job requirements or duties which exceed the job requirements or duties listed on the ETA Form 9089; and
(7) Not contain wages or terms and conditions of employment that are less favorable than those offered to the alien.
So, there it is, that’s the key of this sample PERM advertisement. It covers all of these items in some way. The cost of this sample ad in the Los Angeles Times Orange County Edition was quite cheap for a PERM Ad.
The hard part is done now, it’s simply time to place the ad, and request tear sheets.
